Steak & Spinach Pinwheels

Note: When I first got married I had one cookbook, The Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook. I would read it and try to figure out what I could cook. This is one of the first recipes that I cooked.... successfully. The crazy thing is I am not sure why I cooked it because hubs hates spinach. I still love this recipe and hubs still eats it even though spinach is not his favorite.

Steak & Spinach Pinwheels

8 slices bacon
1 (1 to 1 1/2 pound) beef flank steak
1 (10 oz) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

In a large skillet cook bacon until almost done but not crisp. Drain on paper towels. Score the steak by making diagonal slits every inch making a diamond pattern. Turn over and repeat. Pound steak with a meat mallet starting at the center of the steak and working outward. Sprinkle the steak with salt and pepper. Arrange the bacon lengthwise on the steak. Spread spinach over the bacon. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Roll up the steak from the short side. Secure the steak with toothpicks every inch starting 1/2 inch from the end. Cut between the toothpicks. Place pinwheels on a broiler pan. Broil about 3 inches from the heat. Turn and broil for 6 or 8 more minutes.

And yes... these are delicious if you put them on the grill!

It's the bacon. You can wrap anything in bacon and it's fine.
